According to

Actor Ricky Paull Gordin has worked on soaps on all three networks for the better part of two decades. When he switched from Guiding Light to All My Children two years ago, he voluntarily took a 22 percent pay cut. "I would rather work and have a contract for less money with more stability and less stress in my life," he said. And, despite the precarious position daytime drama is in, he prefers his current situation to sweating out pilot season every year, hoping a nighttime series not only gets picked up but runs for more than 13 episodes before being cancelled.

"A daytime series is the only job in the world where you can turn around and the guy in the cast with you has been on the show 27 years," Gordin said. "It's not a get-rich-quick scheme, trust me. But it is about the work and is about the longevity, and it's still entertainment, and you're still in the top 6 percent of the people in the world who try to go after this. The long and short of that is, I feel blessed."

Wonder if he knows Ricky Paull Goldin?
